D. Wayne Lukas is back in his Kentucky Derby 2013 groove after Will Take Charge
bounced back from his wet track fiasco in the Southwest to edge
stablemate Oxbow in Saturday’s Grade II Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
Will Take Charge stalked and pounced his way to a game Smarty Jones
score prior to aforementioned Southwest drubbing. He received a 95 BSF
for his Rebel win and picked up 50 Kentucky Derby qualifying points.
Oxbow seems to run in every Derby prep race and is
rarely embarrassed. Mike Smith rode him well but I have a feeling that
his Derby horse is War Academy.
